Trip Operator: Best Served Scandinavia
It’s time to call in the babysitters as you head to Finnish Lapland without the kids on this luxury, adults-only break. Flying out to Rovaniemi, you’ll look forward to five, memorable days of snow-bound adventure and indulgent relaxation as included excursions, steaming saunas and gourmet dining introduce you to the very best of this stunningly beautiful corner of Scandinavia.
Day 1: Rovaniemi
Fly to Rovaniemi in Finnish Lapland and transfer to your wilderness boutique hotel – Beana Laponia. Strictly adults only, it’s a romantic base for exploring the beauty of your snow-laden surrounds. Settle into your stylish room before a private evening sauna or a dip in the outdoor Jacuzzi. Then, head to the lodge’s restaurant where the finest local ingredients are showcased in a world-spanning range of gastronomic styles.
Day 2: Snowshoes & Northern Lights
Kickstart your day with a delicious breakfast before the first of your included excursions – snowshoeing. Stepping out into the wilderness, your guide will bring you along pristine forest trails as you keep your eyes peeled for local wildlife. Return to the lodge for lunch and a free afternoon, perhaps making use of the complimentary toboggans and cross-country skis. Then, after dinner, you’ll walk through the woods to a lavvu tent, where campfire stories will keep you entertained as you wait for the Northern Lights.
Day 3: Dogsledding
With 26 years’ experience, Beana Laponia’s husky safaris are among the best in the region. Heading out to the hotel’s own farm, you’ll be greeted by your enthusiastic new companions before setting off on a thrilling, five-hour adventure along the lodge’s own private trails.
Day 4: Snowmobiles & Reindeer
Your final full day begins with a three-hour snowmobile excursion. Then, swap horsepower for hoof power on an afternoon visit to a reindeer farm before a final dinner back at the lodge.
Day 5: Rovaniemi/UK
After breakfast, transfer to Rovaniemi for your flight home.
